Happy Anniversary

2017-11-13T22:43:31+00:00By |

Yay! Lefse Time.com is celebrating another anniversary! Uffda! We’re going into our 10th year and its all thanks to you!

It has been a bumpy, twist and turn venture but we’ve come a long way baby. Man have we learned a lot! (Still learning too.)  We do our very best to bring you all things lefse, because every year we hear more stories about how a loved one used to make lefse but no one does anymore. So we’ve gathered up all the tools and perfected the recipe. So now, YOU can take up the tradition and start passing it down. Gather the family and grab the potatoes…memory making is in progress!

So another year…and we intend to celebrate…all year long! Kicking it off right here. Yes. Right now. We are giving away one of our Lefse Essentials Accessory Kit! All you have to do is leave us a comment below telling us how long you’ve been making lefse. 1 year, 3 years, 30 years? We will announce our winner at the end of May. One entry per person pretty please. Good luck!

 

Bethany Fellowship Lefse Grill – another fun find!

2017-11-13T22:43:31+00:00By |

I frequently hear about the older lefse grills from customers and to be honest I have never had one in my possession, only seen pictures or heard stories. Then one day I stumble on a gem. I am now the proud owner of a Bethany Fellowship Lefse Grill Model 215 and it works!! Ya just can’t beat that!

So in researching I have found that Bethany Fellowship was not a company, it was truly a fellowship founded in 1945 by Ted Hegre in Minneapolis, MN.  It’s now recognized as Bethany College of Missions. As a way of raising funds for their college Bethany has been through several business ventures, one of them being lefse grills back in the day. I found an old advertisement in the Winona Daily News archives from 1968. RD Cone’s Ace Hardware was selling the Bethany Fellowship Lefse Grill: Regular finish $19.95, Teflon $24.95!! Ahhh, to have prices like that again.

I’m still researching, but it is to my understanding the model 215 then went to the model 400/410 Patio Grill and everybody had one of those. My grandfather said he repaired more of those grills than he cares to remember. As he says, “Back then you fixed what you had, you just didn’t toss things out like old news”. Right on Gramps! So now my hunt is onto the model 400. Never know where it might turn up…yard sale, thift store, antique shop, eBay, estate sale. In the meantime, I’d love to hear from you! Have you got an oldie but a goodie? Do you have some history to share? Leave us a comment below!

 

 

Lefse for Deer Camp

2017-11-13T22:43:31+00:00By |

We all know that you need lefse for the holidays, right? It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving or Christmas without lefse. But for my family you HAVE to have lefse for deer camp too! And deer camp kicks off this weekend. The guys bombarded the kitchen and made a mess, BUT they made some pretty awesome lefse too! Some of the highlights…

The youngsters: Dayne, Wade and Tel (ages 12,11,10) rolled amazingly thin and round sheets. (Now one of these days I will think to bring out a camera better than my phone-ugh!)

Here’s Tel’s very first sheet of lefse he has ever rolled! A natural but he comes from a long line of Erickson’s so really we weren’t too surprised. :)

And here is Wade and his first sheet of lefse. His mom is the Lefse Lady so he was feeling pretty confident too!

And here is Dayne and his first sheet. His Mom is the Lefse Lady too and he said he could roll lefse all day long!

The guys were lefse making machines. Here you have Grandpa Mark rolling, even with an injured thumb. You just can’t slow down a stubborn Norwegian! And Ty, the big guy in black, he was a bit camera shy. Very busy concentrating on not burning the lefse. :)

And there you go! The Brush Hollow Legends Deer Hunting crew with their lefse! And the fella in the middle is Bill (he’s Polish!!) but you should see him roll out the lefse. We had to stop him several times because they were gettin’ so big they wouldn’t fit on the grill.
